in pennsylvania's controversial voter i.d. law. we have been waiting for this. nbc's justice correspondent pete williams joins me live. >> the judge said the new voter i.d. law in pennsylvania, the strict new i.d. law cannot go in effect for the general election. there is a chance the state could appeal this to the state's supreme court, but based on what the supreme court said last time they looked at this, it's doubtful they would succeed there. what the judge says here is yes, it's true. the state has said we can fix some of the problems that have come up before, but he says, i question whether there is enough time now to fix these problems. i think there are going to be more problems down the road putting this into effect like we've already seen, he says. he believes that the gap between the photo i.d.'s issued and the estimated need cannot be closed before the election. in other words, he says all the people who would have to get new photo i.d.s, he doubts there is enough time for them to get them. he says i'm not convinced in my predictive judgment there won't be any voter disenfranchisem

a good supreme court justice. after all he's picked a couple and taught constitutional law. he said over and over again for him this is all about what's in a judge's heart. when he nominated sonia sotomayor to the supreme court, president obama laid out his criteria for justices. chief among them empathy. >> it is experience that give a person common sense and touch and compassion and understanding of how the world works and how ordinary people live. and that is why it is a necessary ingredient in the kind of justice we need on the supreme court. >> reporter: it's a trait president obama probably wishes more justices shared when they decided citizens united, the case that largely removed independent corporate spending limits on federal political campaigns. he called out the high court during his 2010 state of the union address. >> with all due deference to separation of powers, last week the supreme court reversed a century of law that i believe will open the flood gates for special interests. >> reporter: four months later the president made sure to highlight similar themes when he nomi

believe many some kind of shaara law and such? should we be supporting these groups more? i doubt that that is a place that conservatives would be comfortable, and romney, as a result, even there is a little bit vague other than saying that obama has done it wrong. he doesn't really tell us specifically what he would do. >> let's talk a little bit about iran. the "new york times" writes recently as august that despite increasingly painful sanctions and covert programs called olympic games that aimed to show the iranian program with cyber attacks, iran has enriched uranium from about one bomb's worth when mr. obama took office in 2009 to the ekwifl i want of about five bombs worth today. we recently saw the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu draw this red line a few weeks ago. is there any daytime between these two as to how tough they're going to get on iran? >> not really. look, the truth of the matter is it's important to understand that iran has a very extensive civilian nuclear program, and when you talk about one bombs worth or five bombs worth, this is not bombs. this
